50 Great Content Ideas to Create Buzz

50 Great Content Ideas to Create Buzz | Social media culture | Scoop.it

I selected this article from conversationagent today not only does it have some great tips for creating compelling content but it gives you examples of people who are doing a good job with each suggestion.

 

These ideas can be used for content curators as well - to create buzz and build an audience, providing "context" is what sets you apart from others - these tips are ways to accomplish that.

 

"Connecting ideas and people -- how talk can change our lives".

 

 

 

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

 

**. Make digestible bits of advice in micro-interactions gain big impact. Kellye Crane built a community for #soloPR practitioners off a Twitter chat filled with useful advice.

 

** Create a new list. People like to see where things stack against each other. By far, the most popular list is still the one Todd And created and AdAge took over.

 

** Give away secrets and tips to help others become more effective. Adam Singer is very generous in that regard.

 

** Teach something new or from a new perspective. Kathy Sierra has been able to do that on a topic that for many was considered not quite appealing

.

** Inspire people to take action and change the world. Entrepreneur Chris Guilleabeau is a good example of that.

 

** Be opinionated about future trends. That's a trait that is best exemplified by Robert Scoble.

 

** Track and review future trends from behind the scenes. A good guide is Louis Gray.

 

**Create a conversation around a social object. That's what Hugh MacLeod does.

 

** Become the expert hub on a subject matter. The consistent "go to" person for branding is the team at Branding Strategy Insider.

Fully 1/3 of my business in executive search, speaking engagements, and consulting projects come directly from content curation and marketing.

Can Curation Help Brands Build Powerful Audiences?

Can Curation Help Brands Build Powerful Audiences? | Social media culture | Scoop.it

This article was written by Josh Sternberg for digiday. I selected this piece because it definitely addressed this question and provided some very good insights and strategies that brands need to know.

 

Excerpt:

 

It's very difficult for brands to amass sizeable audiences on their own nowadays says Neil Chase, SVP of editing and publishing at Federated Media.

 

**If a brand is an expert in a certain topic, their reputation might make them a credible source of information,”

 

Here are some of the takeaways:

 

**The best way to do it is to identify a high-interest topic that you want to be perceived as an expert in,” he said.

 

**“Curate that topic and provide some context around it. If you’re curating a lot of content in a topic area, over time that leads to expertise and credibility.”

 

**brands have to know each of their customers and have the credibility in their field to get consumers to trust the content they spread

 

**“Brands have a content story to tell,” said Colleen DeCourcy, CEO of Socialistic, a social media agency.

 

****“Some brands have data and research they have gathered in the creation of their products that can be contextualized and turned into content — which can give them both real authority on the topic and some real ROI for their effort.”

 

**Brands need to be careful in not only what, but how much they curate. 

 

**Brands need to make sure they’re not just regurgitating content, but instead offering readers/followers valuable information

 

**Steve Rubel, Edelman’s evp of global strategy and insights, suggests brands start by having an editorial point of view and deciding where the content will live — the brand’s site or aggregation sites like Tumblr or Pinterest.

 

**The plus side is that once you do figure out how you want to curate and it becomes part of your broader communications strategy — it’s pretty easy to establish a voice.
